youtube download script update

Actually, there’s no real update at my older post regarding the python script I created for automatically downloading multiple youtube videos. And there’s also nothing wrong with it. Problem is, I tried downloading videos last week and this is the output of my python script:

Retrieving video webpage... done.Extracting URL "t" parameter... failed.Error: unable to extract URL "t" parameter.

Try again several times. It may be a temporary problem.

Other typical problems:* Video no longer exists.

* Video requires age confirmation but you did not provide an account.

* You provided the account data, but it is not valid.

* The connection was cut suddenly for some reason.

* YouTube changed their system, and the program no longer works.

Try to confirm you are able to view the video using a web browser.

Use the same video URL and account information, if needed, with this program.

When using a proxy, make sure http_proxy has http://host:port format.

Try again several times and contact me if the problem persists.

Which usually comes out when the youtube-dl code has been updated most probably because youtube made changes on how they serve their videos. Download/save the latest youtube-dl here and copy it again to your $PATH (in Linux) or you can again refer to my previous post about youtube-dl. Remember, no changes have been made to my python script, you only have to update the youtube-dl code.

After updating my copy of youtube-dl on my Linux box, I’m off to downloading more videos from youtube (^)__(^)

    One of the hottest web 2.0 applications been launched on the net in July 2008 is VideoSwiper a multi user, multi script mass video embedding application that works with most if not all the top video sharing community scripts. Scripts like Clipshare, Vidiscript, PHPmotion, Clipbucket, Social Media, Video CMS, OSTube, Vshare, Media Share Suite, PHPMelody & iVidPlay to name but a few.

    VideoSwiper searches from 30 of the net’s top video site and has already got over 25,000,000 videos in its database, users who own a video sharing script sign up for an account, search for media, edit and manipulate the media then mass send the results directly to their websites.

    This application is not only perfect for the new user to populate their sites but also for the experienced user who’s looking to create keyword rich, targeted niche video sites or blogs as VideoSwiper now has full support for WordPress & Blogger allowing the blogging community to mass add embedded content to their blogs without the need for tags, codes, widgets or modules.
